        Radical processes of transformation are changing the cities and landscapes we inhabit. The traditional instruments of architecture and urban planning are increasingly unable to address the new challenges. Urban Catalyst (UC) is an interdisciplinary platform for research, projects, public interventions, conferences, exhibitions and publications. UC aims to foster public discourse on contemporary urban issues and develop concepts and strategies for planners and architects.
